    - August auto sales were helped by higher farm prices,
launches of new car models and strong tourism, the FTI said.
    - In January-September, auto sales increased 0.5 percent
from a year earlier, it said.
    - The FTI has forecast domestic sales at 750,000-780,000
cars this year. Car sales fell 9.3 percent last year.
    - Annual domestic auto sales have been weak since May 2013,
following the fading effect of a government first-car subsidy
scheme, which ended in 2012, when sales jumped 81 percent.
    - Thailand is a regional vehicle production and export base
for the world's top carmakers.
